In­ter­est­ing Bor­age Tit­bits

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Plants with a purpose -

The high ni­trate of potash con­tent (30% of fresh juice) can cause bor­age to emit sparks and small ex­plo­sive sounds when it is burnt! A bath bag of bor­age mixed with bran and bar­ley will cleanse and soften skin. Bor­age is a good com­pan­ion plant for toma­toes, straw­ber­ries, cab­bage and squash. The flow­ers were candied and made into a con­serve con­sid­ered good for ‘long sick­ness’ and ‘swoon­ings’.
